Wisconsin work injury victim is released from the hospital

A construction work accident that involves a fall from heights can have tragic consequences. A Wisconsin worker who suffers injury may require workers' compensation to help with medical expenses and the cost of maintaining any disabilities that may have been inflicted. Recently, a work injury victim was released from the hospital and able to go home as he struggles to recover from a 45 foot fall.

Wisconsin bridges are often made from heavy metals and concrete forms that require strength, machinery and manpower to create. The workers who climb to great heights and come into direct contact with the heavy materials are reliant on their employers for a safe work environment. Reports indicate that the young man who was released from the hospital suffered his work accident while installing concrete on a new local bridge structure in La Crosse.

The construction worker plummeted to the ground from the bridge he was working on, though how or why he lost his footing was not disclosed in a report about the work accident. The extensive nature of his injuries has not been made available, though he could potentially require ongoing physical therapy for healing or any disabilities he may retain. OSHA has opened an investigation into the incident.

Understandably, a work injury resulting from a fall of such a distance can create physical and emotional trauma in the life of the victim. Thankfully, this work injury victim was released from the hospital, though his treatment may continue for some time. A contractor who has survived a dangerous experience while on the job may choose to seek professional help in collecting workers' compensation to help cover mounting medical expenses and lost wages.
